Introduction paragraph with a couple of sentences.

On their own lines.

Because it’s more interesting to the eye.

And more interesting overall.

Or something.

But first the news:

First part of story with a cliffhanger or punch line to get you to click past the READ MORE.

I never thought I’d be super excited to go work out.


I’m especially super chuffed to see my personal trainer cause she’s awesome and she’s guaranteed to make me sore and she’s so totally going to get me fit again.

With my help.

Over a longer span of time than just, say, one hour tomorrow morning.

But first the news:

I even went on a super long walk today and totally got ten thousand steps in!

What is happening, Warriors?

In the Netherlands, if it’s your birthday, you bring a cake to work to share with everyone. It’s kind of nice – to encourage others to celebrate your day by bribing them with cake – I’m doing the same, but also a couple of friends (we’re allowed to have three! whole! people over as long as we maintain the 1.5 metre rule) are each bringing cake as well, cause #CAKE

My cake to YOU, Warriors, is to share how I tripled my income.

This is not a guarantee or a guide for tripling YOUR income, although, I’m super keen to hear about your thoughts / experience / criticisms as well. It’d be cool if we could put together a guide for career growth from this.
